Three-Dimensional Analysis of the Contact Pattern between the Cortical Bone and Femoral Prosthesis after Cementless Total Hip Arthroplasty

Figure 4

Cumulative frequency of the appearance of spot welds over time (a). Stress shielding of the first (b) and second or greater (c) degree is shown. Solid bars indicate the numbers of hips showing bone remodeling (left) and contact with the bone by portion (right), while the open bars indicate the number of hips without bone remodeling (left) and bone contact (right).
